HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina, in partnership with Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine's Hire Leeward Initiative and the Kapolei Chamber of Commerce, will host a two-day career fair in preparation for the Resort's highly anticipated spring 2016 opening. Four Seasons is expected to hire employees for a wide range of hospitality positions, including culinary, engineering, front desk, housekeeping, pool, recreation, restaurant, security and spa. The career fair will be held at the University of Hawaii – West Oahu Campus on February 26-27, 2016 and will include scheduled interviews for interested applicants.
"Hawaii, particularly the Leeward Coast of Oahu, is such an incredible destination and what sets us apart from other exotic locations globally is the aloha spirit," said Sanjiv Hulugalle, General Manager of Four Seasons Resort Oahu at Ko Olina. "The rich culture and genuine warmth of the people, matched by the desire to treat each visitor as if they were 'ohana, is what embodies the true essence of Hawaii and makes for an unbelievable visitor experience. As Four Seasons continues our recruitment process, we look forward to meeting enthusiastic, passionate applicants to join the Four Seasons 'ohana and showcase their aloha spirit and island, all the while delivering exceptional service from the heart."
For 18 years in a row, Four Seasons has been named by its employees to FORTUNE magazine's list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For. It is one of only 13 organisations to have the distinction of being recognised every year since the list's inception in 1998. The deeply instilled Four Seasons culture is personified by its employees – people who share a single focus and are inspired to offer great service.
"The Hire Leeward Initiative is all about Connecting Leeward Residents with Leeward Jobs," said Councilmember Kymberly Marcos Pine. "I am grateful that Four Seasons is giving a tremendous amount of opportunity for our Leeward residents to find a job closer to home. Our residents will be able to reduce their commute times, spend less time waiting in traffic, and cherish more time with their families."
Interested applicants are encouraged to apply online for posted openings at http://jobs.fourseasons.com in order to be scheduled for an interview. Positions related to the Job Fair will be posted in early February. Job postings will be updated continuously based on anticipated Resort needs. Candidates should bring with them a current resume and a list of work-related references to their interview at the career fair. Following the career fair, follow-up interviews will be extended to a pool of selected candidates.
The Hire Leeward initiative supports the Kapolei Chamber of Commerce's goal of building Kapolei into a major job center. Oahu's 'Second City' continues to grow into its role and many West Oahu residents are motivated to find work closer to where they live, spend less time in traffic and more time with their families.
